Capitalizing...

on a little inconvenience!  For someone that loves to travel, it helps when you can let the system pay for some of your trips.  And usually it is merely by taking advantage of the airlines overbooking or cancellation of flights.

Recently, I was able to book flights to Hawaii because of a willingness to give up our seats on the way to San Antonio last Spring.  What was only a mere inconvenience for us turned into $800 worth of travel vouchers.

Today, we received word that our flight to Los Angeles was cancelled.  For the added trouble of re-scheduling our flight to later in the evening, we are receiving $200 in travel vouchers.

Throughout the years, we have benefited several times in this way.  Often we have found that one trip helps to pay for the next, and so on and so on...

I've even got my kids trained to be willing to give up their seats if it doesn't hinder their plans too much. They, too, love to cash in on free tickets!
